Travel Agents Viewwide sandy beaches of Fanabe are some of the best in Tenerife
Situated in a quieter area of Costa Adeje, Fanabe is popular with families and couples seeking a laid back and relaxing holiday. Within the town centre there are numerous narrow busy streets with plenty of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants.
The wide sandy beaches of Fanabe are some of the best in Tenerife, the long promenade is ideal for taking a stroll whilst taking in wonderful views across the Atlantic Ocean.
Reina Sofia Airport is approx a 15 minute drive.
Insider's ViewFaÃ±abe still has a more exclusive and less frenetic feel to it than the main nightlife centres
FaÃ±abe (pronounced Fan-yah-bay) is the resort responsible for earning Costa Adeje its 'upmarket' tag and putting a serious dent in the popular cheap and cheerful image of Tenerife's southern tourist resorts. Although the arrival of the five star hotels at El Duque has raised the bar on the meaning of upmarket, FaÃ±abe still has a more exclusive and less frenetic feel to it than the main nightlife centres further along the coast.
I find it fascinating to stroll along the promenade behind the long, golden sand of Playa FaÃ±abe which bridges the gap between the new, chic hotels and the older tourist area of Torviscas. It's as if the prices on the menus are on a slope and are sliding down. A burger at the El Duque end will cost you more than you'll pay for a main course of locally caught fish at the Torviscas end. I tend to eat half way down the price slope at somewhere like Coeur de Filet where I can get a very nice meal without feeling that the waiter should be wearing a stocking over his head.
I enjoy shopping around FaÃ±abe, especially on a Thursday and Saturday when the car park opposite the El Duque shopping centre becomes a bustling outdoor market. Shopaholics should also check out the Gransur shopping centre on the other side of the motorway from the main resort area for designer clothes at purse-friendly prices and to catch the latest movie releases at the centre's multicine; one of the only places on Tenerife where you can see movie releases in English.
And the must-sees? Catch a taxi or bus to old Adeje town in the hills behind the resort to experience what island life is like outside the tourist resorts. It's also a good excuse to try out the local speciality, garlic chicken, at Otelo's restaurant and to venture into the depths of the Barranco del Infierno (Hell's Valley), the most popular walk on Tenerife.
